1. The experiment of tossing a coin and rolling a dice at the same time has how many outcomes? List them.

2. A box contains a few green, a few red, and a few white marbles. Four marbles are randomly drawn from this box and the color of these marbles is observed. The total number of outcomes for this experiment is A) 3 B) 6 C) 9 D) you can't tell until you know exactly how many marbles are in the box Explain your response.

3. In a group of 100 teachers, 21 are seniors. If you select one student randomly from this group, the probability (rounded to three decimal places) that this student is a senior is:

4. In a group of 446 families, 311 own homes. If you select one family randomly from this group, the probability (rounded to three decimal places) that this family owns a house is:

5. A quality control staff selects 249 items from the production line of a company and finds 19 defective items. The probability (rounded to three decimal places) that an item manufactured by this company is not defective is:

Use the following to answer questions 6-9. The following table gives the two-way classification of 500 students based on sex and whether or not they suffer from math anxiety. Suffer From Math Anxiety Yes No 183 57 152 108

Sex Male Female

6. If you randomly select one student from these 500 students, the probability that this selected student is a female is: (Round your answer to three decimal places, so .0857 would be .086.)

7. If you randomly select one student from these 500 students, the probability that this selected student suffers from math anxiety is: (Round your answer to three decimal places, so .0857 would be .086.)

8. If you randomly select one student from these 500 students, the probability that this selected student suffers from math anxiety, given that he is a male is: (Round your answer to three decimal places, so .0857 would be .086.)

9. If you randomly select one student from these 500 students, the probability that this selected student is a female, given that she does not suffer from math anxiety is: (Round your answer to three decimal places, so .0857 would be .086.)

Use the following to answer questions 10-13. A pollster asked 1000 adults whether Republicans or Democrats have better domestic economic policies. The following table gives the two-way classification of their opinions. Sex Male Female Republicans 240 150 Democrats 356 184 No Opinion 28 42

The pollster then randomly selected one adult from these 1,000 adults.

10. The probability that the selected adult is a male is: (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

11. The probability that the selected adult says Democrats have better domestic economic policies is: (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

12. The probability that the selected adult is a female given that she thinks that Republicans have better domestic economic policies is approximately: (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

13. The probability that the selected adult has no opinion given that he is a male is approximately: (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
